I think it’s time to quit waving the crayon around, Bobo detractors. This may be the single most astounding team statistic of the 2012-3 season. (Technically, Alabama and Texas A&M still have a chance to catch Georgia, but based on their season averages, ‘Bama would need to amass nearly 640 yards in the national title game and TAMU would have to get nearly 750 yards against Oklahoma to do so. Either is unlikely, to say the least.)
All of you who predicted before the season’s start that Georgia would lead the nation in average yards per play, take a bow. As a group, you very likely fit in a phone booth. To think that was done with a green offensive line, last year’s SEC Freshman of the Year booted off the team and two of Georgia’s top receivers gone for half the season is pretty remarkable.
